Why Elevator?

8th March, 2016

If you are organising a launch or other corporate event you will likely have discovered how difficult it is to find competent and experienced staff to help run things. We are talking everyone from organisational personnel to hostesses, each of whom need to bring to the table a particular skill set and attitude. At Elevator we have a reputation as a leading player in the marketing, branding and staffing world in South Africa, and our reach has grown from origins in the Western Cape to cover most of the country.

Elevator’s relationship with telecommunication giant Cell C seems to be growing in a perpetual motion, leaping from strength to strength. In December 2015, Cell C put the power in our hands and entrusted us with running their Believe Campaign; where we showcased our capabilities on one of the greatest stages – Sun City.
Elevator is a BTL agency that strives to transform and transcend the current marketing realm, however, we also continually strive to transcend our own capabilities and the environment in which we work in. What we have learnt, after numerous years in the industry, is that embracing change is what will give you power; creating change is what gives you the advantage.
With that being said, we fused our creative juices together, equipped ourselves with the necessary tools and began splashing the wall with some love. As with everything that we do, we worked quickly, efficiently but most importantly - effectively. 

Head Honcho, one of South Africa’s leading clothing brands and events labels held the annual Stay Fresh event at Shimmy Beach Bar in Cape Town on Saturday the 13th September 2014.

Jameson, in conjunction with MUMM Champagne was on site to treat some of South Africa’s trendiest party goers with a premium nightclub experience.  Elevator’s events arm was on site to provide the slickest and most comfortable VIP experience for VIP guests.  As they say, photos speak a 1000 words, the promo girls, VIP setup and branding elements were all of the highest quality and appreciated by everyone who was in attendance.

We even we got to enjoy an ice cold Jameson on the rocks at the end of the day, it certainly was Triple Distilled, as the taste was twice as smooth!

Elevator has been working with the number 1 tequila in the world, Jose Cuervo (as per a study).  Our staff in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Bloemfontein, Durban and the Garden Route has been working regularly at venues such as Baron Sandton, Elephant and Friends, Mystic Boer and Florida Keys.

The campaign revolves around a Shotski, a very cool lit up Shotski that holds 3 shot glasses. The idea behind the Shotski activation is to encourage consumers to get involved with the brand and make the brand more interactive.

Pernod Ricard

2nd September, 2014

In the past year Elevator have been involved in many events and activations with a variety of brands for Pernod Ricard SA.  Among the ones that stood out was The Jameson First Shot Awards that occurred on 25 April 2013.  This incredibly classy and upscale event held to celebrate fresh, fearless film makers was made memorable by the Elevator ladies there to represent Jameson and all it stands for.  With these beauties roaming the room alongside the likes of Kevin Spacey, there was a definite poise added to this incredible event.

From the 22nd – 30th June 2012, Elevator embarked on a National flyer drop activation for Cell C – distributing flyers which promoted their recently launched 99c per minute/ per second billing on International calls.  The campaign enables Cell C network holders to make calls to the USA, CHINA, UK, INDIA, AUSTRALIA and PAKISTAN for only 99c per minute.

Playboy SA Magazine has taken local newspapers, blogs and social media by storm, especially in Cape Town’s elite party circles. It is an amazing forum for South Africa to showcase the sexy bosom beauties that grace our local streets and the huge parties they host are definitely worth writing about. The most memorable Playboy SA event to date was the celebration of Playboy SA’s one-year birthday bash on the 26th April 2012. The event brought our gorgeous Elevatormotional staff to Cape Town’s uber chic nightclub Trinity where our influential client Patron was once again part of the Playboy SA hype.

Cell C Community Cup 2013

2nd September, 2014

The pool stages of the Cell C Community Cup will reach a nail-biting climax across the country on Saturday, with four places in the Easter Championships in George still up for grabs and a multitude of permutations meaning as many as 10 teams could still qualify.

Cell C Promotional Girls were all over the games, creating the 'gees' and of course providing customers an option to port to Cell C and receive ridiculous call rates of 99 cents a minute. Just one of Cell C's current offerings... Have you changed to the leading South African network yet?
